Looney Statement on Passing of Bob Ward

HARTFORD – Today, Senate President Pro Tempore Martin M. Looney (D-New Haven) released the following statement on the passing of Bob Ward:

“Bob Ward was the epitome of a public servant. In the 22 years I served with him in the General Assembly, we often disagreed on policy but he was unfailingly honorable, fair, brilliantly insightful, and kind. My thoughts are with his wife, Anita, children, and grandchildren during this time of terrible loss. His tireless efforts made Connecticut a better place. He will be sorely missed and his years as a legislator, DMV Commissioner, and State Auditor will stand as an ongoing model for other public officials to emulate.”
